The North Gorge Walk is a must-do on your visit to North Stradbroke Island. Offering a spectacular outlook from the rocky outcrops to 32 kilometres of white sandy beach, the area is a haven for a variety of marine and bird life. Point Lookout, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, is perfect for whale watching (between June – November) and dolphin spotting and while you’re taking in the incomparable view over the gorge itself, keep your eyes peeled for giant sea turtles
The ferry from Cleveland stops at Dulwich, and is met by a local bus that comes every hour. It takes you to Point Lookout, and then the bus returns to meet the next ferry. From where the bus stops, you walk across to the North Gorge Walk…Takes about 30 minutes and its a beautiful walk if you take your time and amble along with your camera. Towards the other end it gets heavy going with many steps if you have trouble walking climbing tracks like I do. The walk is well worth the effort and not to be missed.
The North Gorge Walk takes about 20 to 30 minutes and has an easy-to-follow, designated track to ensure your safety. The walk commences on an unsealed track and continues on a wooden boardwalk complete with benches for you to sit back and admire the stunning panoramic views – picture-perfect sunrises and sunsets are part of the package too.
